The 20 Best Party Movies on Netflix

If things are going to be light and fluffy, then a party is urgently needed. These 20 movies give you the feeling of partying and good vibes and are recommended to get in the mood yourself.

Superbad (2007)

School friends Seth (Jonah Hill) and Evan (Michael Cera) are classic losers. They are neither athletic nor do they have money, and the girls are in a bad way too. When a friend of theirs brags about having a fake driver’s license made, the two guys see their chance.

They want to crash one of the biggest parties of all time to be accepted by the others finally. In favor of that, the guys will bring lots of alcohol for the party. But what should be a simple trip to the nearest supermarket quickly turns into a crazy trip.

“Superbad” is one of the funniest party movies of the last 20 years and has made not only Jonah Hill but also Michael Cera young stars virtually overnight. The duo provides plenty of laughs!

Project X (2012)

Costa, JB, and Thomas have only one dream. The three teens finally want to be respected kids. It’s not so easy, though, because the three are considered model losers in their school. When Thomas’s parents open up to their son that they’re going to celebrate his 17. The friends see an opportunity when they won’t be there for their 25th birthday.

They are planning a party where they want to invite everyone who is somehow hip and trendy. The only stupid thing is that Costa makes a small mistake when writing the invitation. Instead of sending it online to a handful of friends, he chases the party announcement once across the country. What was supposed to be a fun party night quickly turns into massive chaos as hundreds of people drop by for unbridled partying.

“Project X” picks up news of parties that can get out of hand and take action to extremes. With this film, a good mood is pre-programmed in any case.

Life of the Party (2018)

Deanna Miles (Melissa McCarthy) has a problem. Her husband has just kicked her out because he is having an affair with an attractive real estate agent named Marcie. Deanna decides to see the situation as a chance for a fresh start. She wants to catch up on her college graduation and enrolls in the same college that her daughter Maddie (Molly Gordon) attends.

Because Deanna wants to show she’s still got it and can be cool, she joins a sorority with her daughter. Although the mother is no longer quite young, she drinks the girls under the table and quickly becomes the center of the celebrations.

Melissa McCarthy plays the role of the staid mother who mutates into a party monster wonderfully exaggeratedly. Their chaotic ways make the film a real page-turner with plenty of potential to party along with them.

However, what sounds like an absolute guarantee of success quickly turns into absolute chaos of shrill music, hash, and bright colors.

It’s the same when a new student Tia (Britanny Murphy), arrives at the school. Cher and Dion take the new girl under their wing and introduce her to the colorful world of Beverly Hills. Since none of the girls are interested in anything other than shopping and chilling, they first perform a complete type makeover on Tia before jumping into the usual Beverly Hills party full of pageantry and mayhem with the girl.

Alicia Silverstone, as a token ditz with loose money and a penchant for partying, is hilarious and quickly gets even the dullest get-togethers going. Timelessly good!

Fyre (2019)

‘Fyre’ is a Netflix movie about an infamous music festival that promised its fans a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Now Elle has two choices: Either she forgets about Noah for the sake of friendship, or she pursues her romantic interest and tries to make her best friend understand her situation. The movie doesn’t have much to offer in terms of plot and characters, but it’s a sweet story to enjoy on a lazy afternoon.
